i<Clicker or similar polling systems are tools that instructors can use to effectively implement active learning in the classroom. Well designed questions can provide instructors with real-time feedback to highlight misconceptions, increase curiosity, and prompt student peer discussion.
Come and learn how to set-up the interactive polling system using i<Clicker. This session will include getting the instructor kit installed onto your computer, getting students set-up correctly the first week, best practices for question design and polling use, and general troubleshooting and Q&A.
Sessions will be facilitated by Jonathan Rodgers, Deb Pires, and Kristin Strong.
Bring your laptop and a flash drive. RSVP here and let us know if you will need an instructor kit. Your TA can accompany you, but should not be sent in your place.
